Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
what pisses me off is that they're devoting hours of tv time to him theres an hour long programme on channel 5 tonight.

Derek Brimstone died the other week. A seminal character on the English folk scene. All the 70's folk comedians - Jasper Carrot, Billy Connolly, Mike Harding, Fred WEdlock - all claimed Derek as an influence> He made thousands and thousands of people laugh. Influenced hundreds of guitar and banjo players. was unstinting in his encouragement and help for young musicians. taught us hundreds of folksongs - everything from American folk blues to the Copper family. on top of that he was a beloved friend, a gentle husband and much loved father.

what fuckwit is it decides that Brady gets an hours TV devoted to his life and achievements?
